Listen up, America! No one gives a shit about Conan or Leno!

I hope everyone had yesterday off work! And if you didn’t, your boss is racist.

The Golden Globes happened, apparently.

And while they were happening, far more importantly, Oliva Wilde talked about how geeked she is for Tron Legacy. That makes two of us, sister!

Oof, it’s almost Christmas, ya heard? Slave-driving Santa is keeping this little elf hella busy, so it’ll be a shortie this week!

golden globes

The Golden Globe noms are up and they’re typically boring and random. I love watching this particular kudos show because I think it’s fun and shiny, but yeah, the awards themselves are utterly irrelevant. But what do we think about exes Kathryn Bigelow and James Cameron going up against one another for Best Director? EXCITING! (Y’all know I’m psyched about Avatar, and I totally accidentally missed The Hurt Locker in the theatre, but still, go Kat!)

Hrmm. Peter Parker as Bilbo Baggins? Get out your grain of salt for this one. I still like James McAvoy for the role, but granted, I like Jimmy Mac for everything. Seriously, for every role ever.

So, when I was called in off of the blogger bench to pinch hit for Marla, the first piece of news that got me all semi-hard was the possibility of a Jeff Bridges-Coen Brothers Reunion. It would be a remake of the only movie my grandfather has not one but Two VHS copies of—True Grit. Bridges would reprise John Wayne’s role.

I hope you all were able to enjoy a labor-free Labor Day! Yeah? Now get to work! This News Day Tuesday is serious business!

The Host 2. I’m not sure I’ll see it, but at least it’s not infuriating me like the American remake is.

Sooooo much sequels-and-remakes news in this NDTD; prepare yourself. 30 Days of Night.

It’s a quickie today, folks! Sorry for the systemic whittling down of DIH, but I promise to beef it back up with a vengeance in 6 weeks (aka: post-nuptially).

Posh D has unveiled a new blog: Forever Young Adult! Also featuring Erin, frequent commenter here! I am forever in PD’s debt after she loaned me Hunger Games, so take her recommendations very seriously, folks.

20th Century Fox is rebooting the Fantastic Four franchise, hopefully with an entirely new cast and creative team because the last ones sucked ass.

Extra! Extra! Come see me host the Deadgirl midnight screening at Houston’s River Oaks theater this Friday, July 24! I’ll be charming! And I’ll serve…free beer! And I’ll…throw cash at you, Joker-style!

Okay, no, to most of the above, but I WILL be there, hosting a movie that is certain to kick your ass with a whole lot of awesome, and I promise to be mostly sober even though it’s my birthday. So show up and support me! I demand it!

On to the actual news!

Again, with the duh.

Every single bit of Zombieland intel has me convinced it’s going to kick some massively intense ass. The one sheet is no exception.
